Description

自调整非连续接收模式 The self-adjusting discontinuous reception mode

技术领域 FIELD

[0001] 无线接入网络以及针对不同数据应用的特定增强可以受益于自调整非连续接收(DRX)模式。 [0001] Wireless access networks and different data for a particular application may be enhanced benefit from adjusting discontinuous reception (DRX) mode. 对DRX配置/控制机制的增强可以更敏感地响应于单个应用或并行运行的多个应用的需求和活动,并具有对随时间变化的流量剖析(traffic profile)以及对应用需求的改进的自适应性,由此允许对性能与用户设备的电池消耗之间的权衡的改进的优化。 Of DRX configuration / control mechanism can be enhanced more sensitive response to the needs and activities of a single application or multiple applications running in parallel, and having an adaptive and time-varying traffic profiles (traffic profile) of the application requirements for improved resistance, thereby allowing for improved optimization of the tradeoff between performance and battery consumption of the user equipment.

背景技术 Background technique

[0002] 针对第三代合作伙伴项目(3GPP)的长期演进(LTE)存在各种非连续接收(DRX)操作。 [0002] There are various discontinuous reception (DRX) operation for the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Long Term Evolution (LTE). 关于LTE中的非连续接收的规范的一个示例为技术规范(TS)36.321。 An example of the LTE in the discontinuous reception specification of technical specification (TS) 36.321. 各种机制包括休眠模式和其他节能机制。 Various mechanisms including sleep mode and other energy-saving mechanism. 例如,基站可以通过用户设备与网络之间的较高层信令传输来对DRX调整进行控制。 For example, the base station may be controlled to adjust the DRX higher layer signaling between the user equipment and the network.

[0003] 当流量是在长时间以及可能的不规则的间隔到来的具有不同数据量的突发时,难于使用传统的非连续接收功能在较长时间段对非连续接收进行最优配置。 [0003] When the flow rate is in the interval of time and may have different irregular arrival of burst data amount, it is difficult using conventional DRX discontinuous reception function optimally arranged in a long period of time.

[0004] 因此,网络可以选择配置开通持续时间(on-duration),并且相比于用于处理一个短流量突发而花费的平均持续时间而言,不活动计时器值会非常长(例如,50-200ms)。 [0004] Thus, the network may choose to configure the on-duration (on-duration), for processing as compared to a short traffic bursts in terms of the average duration of time spent, inactivity timer value will be very long (e.g., 50-200ms). 如果计时器被设置得时间更短,则传统观点会认为减少了调度灵活性。 If the timer is set to be shorter, the traditional view would consider reducing scheduling flexibility. 此外,频繁对用户设备的非连续接收进行重新配置来匹配不同条件,这会产生信令传输开销,因此网络通常基于最差情况来对设置进行配置。 In addition, frequent user equipment DRX reconfiguration to match different conditions, which results in signaling overhead, network typically based on settings to configure the worst case. 这会使得用户设备的功耗变高并且因此减少用户设备的电池寿命,或者使得信令传输开销变高并且因此还会减少可用于数据传输的网络容量。 This will make the user equipment power consumption becomes high and thus reduces the battery life of the user equipment, or that the signaling overhead is increased and thus will reduce network capacity is available for data transmission.

[0005] 然而,不存在对DRX配置/控制机制的如下传统增强,该增强使得DRX配置/控制机制更敏感地响应于单个应用或并行运行的多个应用的需求和活动,并具有对随时间变化的流量剖析以及对应用需求的改进的自适应性,由此允许对用户设备中的性能与电池消耗之间的权衡的改进的优化。 [0005] However, as there is no conventional DRX configuration / control mechanism of enhanced, so that the reinforcing DRX configuration / control mechanisms more sensitive response to the needs and activities of a single application or multiple applications running in parallel, and having a function of time Analysis of the flow rate change and the application requirements for improved adaptability, thereby allowing for an improved trade-off between performance and user equipment to optimize battery consumption.

[0014] 为了正确理解本发明,应当对附图进行参考,在附图中: [0014] In order to understand the present invention, reference should be made to the accompanying drawings, in which:

[0016] 图2图示了根据某些实施方式的方法; [0016] FIG 2 illustrates a method embodiment in accordance with certain embodiments;

[0018] 图4图示了根据某些实施方式的系统。 [0018] FIG. 4 illustrates a system in accordance with certain embodiments.

具体实施方式 Detailed ways

[0019] 某些实施方式提供了响应于单个应用或并行运行的多个应用的需求和活动的非连续接收(DRX)配置/控制机制。 [0019] Certain embodiments provide a response to DRX needs and activities of a single application or multiple applications running in parallel (DRX) configuration / control mechanism. 某些实施方式还具有对随时间变化的流量剖析以及对应用需求的自适应性。 Some embodiments further having a time-varying traffic profiles and adaptive to the application requirements. 因此,某些实施方式允许在用户设备(UE)的性能功率使用(例如,电池消耗)之间的期望的平衡。 Thus, certain embodiments allow a user among Equipment (UE) used in performance of the power (e.g., battery consumption) of the desired balance.

[0020] 在某些实施方式中,用户设备可以配置有允许其在某些时间段期间停止监控物理下行链路控制信道(PDCCH)的非连续接收功能。 [0020] In certain embodiments, the device may be configured for allowing a user during a certain period of time it stops monitoring the physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) of the discontinuous reception function. 用户设备的配置(例如,初始配置)可以由使用无线资源控制(RRC)或媒体接入控制(MAC)信令传输的网元来执行。 Configure the user equipment (e.g., an initial configuration) may be performed by the network element signaling transmitted using a radio resource control (RRC) or Medium Access Control (MAC).

[0021] 在某些实施方式中,更具体地,用户设备和/或演进节点B(eNB)(或其他基站)可以基于活动调度(在非连续接收周期内的何处调度用户设备)对非连续接收持续时间(不活动计时器和开通持续时间计时器)进行自动调整,而不需要来自eNB的信令传输(或者不需要附加信令传输)。 [0021] In certain embodiments, more specifically, user equipment and / or evolved Node B (eNB) (or other base stations) may be based on activity schedule (the discontinuous reception cycle in the schedule where the user equipment) non continuous reception duration (and the inactivity timer duration timer) is automatically adjusted, without signaling (or no additional signaling) from the eNB. 用户设备配置其自己的计时器而不需要任何信令传输(或者在初始配置之后不需要任何附加信令传输)可以被称为用户设备的“自治”操作。 User equipment is configured with its own timer without any signaling (or no additional signaling after the initial configuration) it may be referred to as user equipment "autonomous" operation. 然而,该“自治”操作可以基于用户设备(UE)与演进节点B(eNB)之间的已知规则并且因此是可预测的。 However, the "autonomous" operating can be based on known rules between user equipment (UE) and an evolved Node B (eNB) and is therefore predictable.

[0022] 例如,在某些实施方式中,用户设备可以调整开通持续时间、不活动计时器的长度和/或非连续接收周期长度或其他DRX相关参数。 [0022] For example, in certain embodiments, the user equipment may adjust the on-duration, inactivity timer length and / or discontinuous reception DRX cycle length, or other parameters.

[0023] 用户设备可以针对此类调整使用规则。 [0023] The user equipment can use the rules for such adjustments. 规则可以基于在非连续接收周期内的何处成功调度了用户设备以及调度用户设备的频率。 Where rules may be based on the discontinuous reception cycle and the user equipment successfully dispatched frequency scheduling the user equipment. 成功调度可以基于正确接收包括针对用户设备的调度的物理下行链路控制信道(PDCCH)进行确定。 Scheduling may be determined based on the success of correct reception includes a scheduling of the user equipment physical downlink control channel (PDCCH). 备选地,成功调度可以基于对指示针对用户设备的初始上行链路(UL)或下行链路(DL)用户数据传输的HXXH的成功解码来确定。 Alternatively, the scheduling may be determined based on the success of indicating successful decoding of HXXH (DL) user data transmission for the initial uplink (UL) or downlink user equipment.

[0024] 规则可以包括以下项中的任意项及其任意组合:在开通持续时间期间是否调度了用户设备;在不活动计时器期间是否调度了用户设备;活动时间有多长;活动时间需要有多长;以及调度模式如何,例如,密度、频率、周期性或混合自动重传请求(HARQ)状态。 [0024] The rules may include any of the following items and any combination of: the turn-on period duration is scheduled user equipment; during the inactivity timer if the scheduled user equipment; Time how long; active time needed long; and how the scheduling mode, e.g., density, frequency, periodicity or hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) status. 两侧(用户设备和网络)均可以预先知道规则,因此这些自适应可以发生而不需要进一步的信令传输。 Sides (user equipment and the network) can be known in advance rules, these can take place without further adaptation of the signaling. 此外,通常由于网络知道规则以及用户设备应用规则所依据的基础,因此网络能够知道针对这些自适应的用户设备的状态而不需要来自用户设备的信令传输。 Further, since the network usually knows the rules and the user equipment based rules based on the application, so the network is able to know the status of these for adaptive user equipment without signaling from the user equipment.

[0025] 因此,在某些实施方式中,存在基于具有静态非连续接收部分和自身适应非连续接收部分的自身适应非连续接收模式。 [0025] Thus, in certain embodiments, the presence of discontinuous reception based on a static portion and adapt itself to a discontinuous reception mode DRX portions adapt itself. 代替只包括由网络设置的固定非连续接收参数的非连续接收模式,在某些实施方式中,常规固定长度开通持续时间计时器(开通持续时间计时器(onDurationTimer))和常规固定长度不活动计时器(非连续接收_不活动计时器(drx-1nactivityTimer))是非连续接收配置中的自身适应参数。 Instead of including only a discontinuous reception mode DRX fixed parameter set by the network, in some embodiments, a conventional fixed-duration timer length (duration timer (the onDurationTimer)) and a conventional fixed length inactivity timer is (_ DRX inactivity timer (drx-1nactivityTimer)) in the discontinuous reception configuration parameters to adapt itself.

[0026] 因此,在某些实施方式中,非连续接收模式参数(例如,包括上文所述的非连续接收计时器长度)在用户设备中被自动适配。 [0026] Thus, in certain embodiments, the discontinuous reception mode parameters (e.g., including the above discontinuous reception timer length) is automatically adapted in the user equipment. 例如,非连续接收计时器的长度可以基于活动调度(例如,基于在非连续接收周期内的什么地方对用户设备进行调度)来自动调整。 For example, the length of the timer may be discontinuous reception (e.g., based on where in the discontinuous reception cycle for scheduling a user equipment) based on the activity schedule is automatically adjusted.

[0027] 在某些实施方式中,虽然可以存在静态部分和动态或自适应部分,但是在某些实施方式中,可以利用全自身适应方案。 [0027] In certain embodiments, though there may be dynamic or static and adaptive part, in certain embodiments, may utilize the full adaptation scheme itself.

[0028] 因此,在某些实施方式中,用户设备自身适应非连续接收模式。 [0028] Thus, in certain embodiments, the user equipment adapts itself to the discontinuous reception mode. 换言之,用户设备可以基于变化的调度活动性来自治地(但可能由规则引导)适配非连续接收模式。 In other words, the user equipment based on the scheduling activity may change from treatment (but may be guided by the rule) is adapted discontinuous reception mode. 具体地,用户设备可以调整开通持续时间的长度、不活动计时器和/或非连续接收周期长度。 Specifically, the user equipment may adjust the length of the opening duration, inactivity timer, and / or discontinuous reception cycle length.

[0029] 例如,在某些实施方式中,每当不活动计时器被触发(例如,由于UE被调度)时,计时器针对下一周期或触发而被逐渐延长(潜在地到达某个最大长度)。 [0029] For example, in certain embodiments, the inactivity timer is triggered each time (e.g., since the UE is scheduled), the timer for the next cycle is gradually extended or trigger (potentially reach a maximum length ). 在另一实施方式中,开通持续时间的长度可以由用户设备类似地适配。 In another embodiment, the opening length of the duration can be similarly adapted by the user equipment. 相反,如果不活动计时器没有被触发或使用,则不活动计时器可以针对下一周期或触发而被缩短。 Conversely, if the inactivity timer is triggered or not use, the timer can not be shortened for the next cycle or trigger events.

[0030] 图1图示了某些实施方式的操作。 [0030] FIG. 1 illustrates the operation of certain embodiments. 如图1中所示,用户设备被配置如下。 As shown in Figure 1 the user equipment is configured as follows. 在非连续接收使用的情况下,代替具有固定持续时间的开通持续时间计时器或不活动计时器,基于用户设备是否被调度来适配那些计时器,从而使非连续接收模式适配于当前流量。 In the case of discontinuous reception using, instead of the duration timer or inactivity timer has a fixed duration, based on whether the user equipment is adapted to those scheduled timer, so that the discontinuous reception mode adapted to the current traffic . 图1图示了不活动计时器如何可以基于是否使用了不活动计时器来在连续不断的非连续接收周期中适配。 Figure 1 illustrates how the inactivity timer may be based on whether the inactivity timer be adapted in a continuous cycle of discontinuous reception. 例如,当用户设备在不活动计时器期间没有被调度时,计时器被缩短。 For example, when the user equipment is not scheduled during the inactivity timer, the timer is shortened. 同样,当用户设备在不活动计时器期间被调度时,计时器被复位至原始值(或延长)。 Similarly, when the user equipment is scheduled during the inactivity timer, the timer is reset to the original value (or extended).

[0031] 如图1中所示,在第一非连续接收(DRX)周期中,用户设备具有一个短开通持续时间(两个时间单元)随后接着一个长不活动计时器(四个时间单元)以及两个附加时间单元,其中用户设备选择将接收器关机(即,处于DRX)。 [0031] As shown in FIG. 1, in a first discontinuous reception (DRX) cycle, the user equipment having a short-duration (two units of time) then followed by a long inactivity timer (four units of time) and two additional units of time, wherein the user equipment selects to shut down the receiver (i.e., in the DRX).

[0032] 如图所示,用户设备可以确定(例如,基于定义的或配置的规则)由于缺少流量,长不活动计时器在这里没有用,并且因此可以确定在随后的周期中缩短不活动计时器。 [0032] As shown, the user equipment may determine (e.g., based on the rules defined or configured) due to lack of traffic, where long inactivity timer is not used, and therefore may shorten the determined timing in a subsequent inactive period device. 备选地,缩短可以基于不止一个这样的周期,其中长不活动计时器变得不是必须的。 Alternatively, shortened may be based on more than one such cycle, wherein the long inactivity timer becomes unnecessary. 在该示例中,不活动计时器的初始长度可以是固定量。 In this example, the initial length of the inactivity timer may be a fixed amount. 然而,在另一示例中,不活动计时器的初始长度可以基于调度的传输或者基于开通持续时间计时器的长度。 However, in another example, the initial length of the inactivity timer can be opened based on the length of the duration timer or based on scheduled transmission.

[0033] 在第二非连续接收周期中,不活动计时器被缩短一个单元。 [0033] In a second discontinuous reception cycle, the inactivity timer is shortened by one unit. 然而,再一次发现不活动计时器长得没有必要,并且可以被再次缩短。 However, once again we found the inactivity timer is no longer necessary and can be shortened again. 在备选实施方式中,不活动计时器可以在最初决定之后被更强力的缩短以缩短不活动计时器。 In an alternative embodiment, the inactivity timer can be shortened to shorten the more powerful inactivity timer after the initial decision.

[0034] 在第三非连续接收周期中,不活动计时器可以再次被认为长得没有必要并且可以被缩短。 [0034] In a third discontinuous reception period, the inactivity timer can be considered not necessary to grow again and can be shortened. 在该情况下,不活动计时器可以与开通持续时间计时器重叠(即,在DRX周期的第二时间单元,开通持续时间计时器和不活动计时器均在运行)。 In this case, an inactivity timer may overlap duration timer (i.e. the time unit at the second DRX cycle, on-duration timer and inactivity timer are running). 应当注意,在此例示中,开通持续时间计时器本质上是静态的,而不活动计时器是动态的。 It should be noted that in this illustrated embodiment, the opening duration timer are static in nature, rather than inactivity timer is dynamic. 然而,开通持续时间计时器不需要是静态的,并且这里使用不活动计时器作为示例说明的内容原则上还可以应用于开通持续时间计时器(或者两者)。 However, the duration timer need not be static, and is used herein as the inactivity timer on the content of the principles described may also be applied to an example of the on-duration timer (or both).

[0035] 在第四非连续接收周期中,由于更多的活动量,不活动计时器可以具有更多的用处,并且不活动计时器可以被延长。 [0035] In a fourth discontinuous reception cycle, since more amount of activity, inactivity timer may have more usefulness, and the inactivity timer may be extended. 例如,不活动的长度可以基于活动级别(作为活动进度)。 For example, the length of inactivity can be based on level of activity (as an active schedule).

[0036] 在第五非连续接收周期中,当UE在不活动计时器中调度时,该不活动计时器可以被前摄地延长。 [0036] In a fifth discontinuous reception cycle when the inactivity timer scheduled UE, the inactivity timer may be extended before the subject. 因此,例如,所示第五非连续接收周期可以例示对所示第四非连续接收周期的备选。 Thus, for example, as shown in the fifth cycle of discontinuous reception can be exemplified by non-illustrated fourth alternative discontinuous reception cycle.

[0037] 备选地,不活动计时器或开通持续时间可以基于先前非连续接收周期中活动的整体长度来被适配。 [0037] Alternatively, the inactivity timer or opening duration may be based on the overall length of the previous DRX cycle activity to be adapted. 另一选择是,基于先前周期中活动时间的有效长度对非连续接收参数进行调整。 Another choice is to adjust the discontinuous reception parameters based on the effective active length of the previous cycle time. 有效长度可以被限定为从周期的开始到用户设备在此周期中最后一次成功调度-最后不对任何“非必须”活动计数,其中用户设备正在等待进入非连续接收。 The effective length may be defined as a period from the start to the user equipment in this last successful scheduling period - not any final "non-essential" activity counts, wherein the user equipment is waiting to enter the discontinuous reception. 自适应的原理可以使得:如果活动时间对比于需求过于充裕,则将其缩短(例如,通过适配开通持续时间计时器或不活动计时器)。 The adaptation may be such that principle: If the active time in contrast to the demand is too abundant, it is shortened (e.g., by adapting the duration timer or inactivity timer). 并且如果活动时间过短并且可以从扩展受益,则将其延长。 And if the activity time is too short and can benefit from an extended, it is extended.

[0038] 用户设备和网络均可以需要知道关于周期如何变化的规则。 [0038] user equipment and the network can be required to know the rules about how the cycle of change. 因此,用户设备可以自治地改变计时器或周期的其他特性而不需要来自网络的进一步的信令传输,并且网络可以预测用户设备将如何改变计时器,而不需要显式地向用户设备信令传输应当进行的这种改变,由此允许用户设备自治地且可预测地进行操作。 Accordingly, the user equipment can autonomously alter other characteristics or cycle timer without further signaling from the network, and the network can predict how the user equipment to change timer, without explicitly signaling to the user equipment such changes should be transmitted, thereby allowing the user equipment autonomously and operate predictably. 因此,可以不需要附加的信令传输。 Thus, no additional signaling. 然而,可以使用与自治操作一致的信令传输以用于初始提供更新模式的规则。 However, signaling may be used consistent with the autonomous operation of the rule to provide an initial update mode. 备选地,用于更新模式的那些规则可以在规范中进行修正。 Alternatively, the rules for updating mode may be corrected in the specification.

[0039] 为了处理错误情况,即网络和用户设备由于出现的错误而对DRX模式具有不同的理解的情况,网络可以具有对配置进行复位的能力。 Where [0039] In order to handle error conditions, i.e. the network and the user equipment due to the errors have a different understanding of the DRX mode, the network may have the capability to reset configuration. 信令传输可以用于该目的。 Signaling can be used for this purpose. 例如,网络可以简单地提供新的非连续接收配置(即,新的初始配置)。 For example, the network may simply provide a new discontinuous reception configuration (i.e., the new initial configuration). 备选地,网络可以提供显式复位命令。 Alternatively, the network may provide explicit reset command. 在其他备选中,可以使用隐式机制进行复位。 In another alternative, use can be implicitly reset mechanism. 例如,自动复位可以在出现预定事件之后或者在预定时间长度之后执行。 For example, an automatic reset is performed or after a predetermined length of time after a predetermined event occurs.

[0040] 除了不活动计时器长度和开通持续时间计时器长度,还可以完成非连续接收周期长度(出现开通持续时间)。 [0040] In addition to the length and the inactivity timer duration timer length may also complete discontinuous reception cycle length (appear on-duration). 例如,可以使用多个当前周期长度,由此维持活动的已知公共点(drxStartOffset)以用于允许从错误中恢复。 For example, a plurality of the current cycle length, thereby maintaining the activity of the known common point (drxStartOffset) for allowing to recover from the error. 备选地,可以采用一步法,其中在不活动的给定时间(没有活动调度)之后,将非连续接收周期的开通持续时间周期增加至给定的 Alternatively, one-step, to increase the duration of the opening period wherein after a given time (no activity schedule) inactive, the discontinuous reception cycle to a given

第二长度。 Second length.

[0041] 在某些实施方式中,如果用户设备进行了调度,则不仅是不活动扩展,而且不活动计时器长度可以更紧密地适用于用户设备的需求。 [0041] In certain embodiments, if the user equipment scheduling, it is not only extended inactivity, and the inactivity timer length may be more closely applicable to the needs of the user equipment. 因此,例如,在某些实施方式中,当不需要不活动计时器的当前全长度时,可以缩短该不活动计时器。 Thus, for example, in certain embodiments, the full length of the current when no inactivity timer, the inactivity timer can be shortened. 同样,在某些实施方式中,当用户设备的活动调度时间被不活动计时器扩展时,可以扩展不活动计时器,并且在扩展部分期间对用户设备进行调度。 Also, in some embodiments, the scheduled time when the movable user device is extended inactivity timer, the inactivity timer can be extended, and the extended portion of the user equipment scheduling period. 因此,例如,当在开通持续时间内发生全调度时,不活动计时器不可以被扩展。 Thus, for example, when the full scheduled to occur within on-duration, inactivity timer may not be extended.

[0042] 在某些实施方式中,可以完成自适应从而使得用于缩短计时器的步长更小并且增量更大。 [0042] In certain embodiments, the adaptation can be done so that the timer for reducing the step size is smaller and larger increments. 例如,增量直接(即,在初始化或复位时)到配置的开始值并且继而以小步长减少。 For example, direct increment (i.e., at the time of initialization or reset) to the starting value configured in small steps and in turn decrease. 实际上,用户设备可以仅配置用于增加回到初始配置,但配置用于逐渐地少量减少。 Indeed, the user device may be configured only to increased back to the initial configuration, but the configuration for gradually small reduction. 备选地,可以按照更大的量来减少并且按照更小的量来增加。 Alternatively, may be reduced by the greater amount and a smaller amount in accordance with the increase. 增加和减少的期望的混合可以取决于与功率使用相比的网络性能的相对值。 Increase and decrease the desired mixing depending upon the relative values ​​of the network performance can be compared to the power used.

[0043] 在某些实施方式中,除了不活动计时器之外或者代替不活动计时器,可以适配开通持续时间计时器。 [0043] In certain embodiments, in addition to or instead of the inactivity timer inactivity timer duration timer may be adapted. 因此,在某些实施方式中,计时器自适应可以应用于两个计时器。 Thus, in some embodiments, the adaptive timer may be applied to two timers.

[0044] 在某些实施方式中,开通持续时间和/或不活动计时器的自适应可以取决于UE状态或者专用的信令传输。 [0044] In certain embodiments, the opening duration and / or adaptive inactivity timer may depend on the UE state or dedicated signaling. 例如,如果UE不再是可以应用的UL同步UE (和eNB),则例如可以应用短开通持续时间计时器(其具有较长计时器值(如较长开通持续时间计时器))。 For example, if the UL UE is no longer synchronized applicable UE (and the eNB), it may be applied, for example, a short-duration timer (which has a longer timer value (e.g., long duration timer)).

[0045] 在调度时直接跳至最大计时器设置可以提供用户设备与基站(诸如,eNB)之间的同步损失的最低可能性。 [0045] skip when scheduling the maximum timer setting may provide a user equipment and a base station (such as, eNB) to a minimum the possibility of loss of synchronization between the. 跳至最大计时器设置还可以提供错误情况下的DRX的重同步。 Skip maximum timer setting can also provide resynchronization DRX under the wrong circumstances.

[0046] 在某些实施方式中,可以避免针对某个时间如果用户设备被调度(即使用户设备仅被调度一次)而激活短非连续接收(短DRX)。 [0046] In certain embodiments, for a certain time can be avoided if the user equipment is scheduled (even if the user equipment is scheduled only once) and activate the short discontinuous reception (short DRX). 例如,非连续接收模式可以基于用户设备在周期内的何处被调度以及被调度的频率进行适配。 For example, the discontinuous reception mode may be adapted based on where the user equipment is scheduled in the period and the scheduled frequency. 因此,如果模式过于宽裕,则自身适应可以将其减少,并且如果模式过于约束,则自身适应可以将其扩展。 Therefore, if the model is too generous, it adapts itself to reduce it, and if the model is too constrained, then it can adapt itself to expand. 此外,不是基于固定的持续时间,而是可以应用短非连续接收直到模式的使用和流量改变。 Furthermore, it not based on a fixed duration, but may be applied using a short discontinuous reception mode until the flow rate and change. 因此,某些实施方式可以与短非连续接收一起工作或者可以代替短非连续接收使用。 Thus, certain embodiments may work with short discontinuous reception or may be used in place of the short discontinuous reception.

[0047] 因此,例如,用户设备和eNB可以基于活动调度(用户设备在非连续接收周期内的何处被调度)自动地调整非连续接收持续时间(不活动计时器和开通持续时间计时器),而不需要来自eNB的信令传输。 [0047] Thus, e.g., eNB and the user device may automatically adjust the duration of discontinuous reception based on the activity schedule (user equipment in a discontinuous reception cycle where scheduled) (and the inactivity timer duration timer) without signaling from the eNB.

[0048] 因此,在某些实施方式中,非连续接收可以适配于改变流量而不需要显式重配置信令传输。 [0048] Thus, in certain embodiments, the discontinuous reception can be adapted to change the flow rate without the need for explicit reconfiguration signaling. 这种技术可以减少网络中的信令传输开销,其可以在宏单元(macro cell)中提供最大效率,其中可以同时连接并服务多个用户设备。 This technique may reduce signaling overhead in the network, which can provide maximum efficiency in the macro cell (macro cell), and which can be connected to service multiple user devices simultaneously.

[0049] 此外,在某些实施方式中,非连续接收模式可以比在常规系统中更频繁地更新。 [0049] Further, in certain embodiments, the discontinuous reception mode than in conventional systems can be updated more frequently. 因此,非连续接收模式可以更适合用户设备的需求并且提供节能。 Thus, the discontinuous reception mode may be more suitable for the needs of the user equipment and provide energy. 因此,用户设备可以在调度发生时保持活动更长时间,但在没有活动调度发生时仍使用短计时器,而不需要来自网络的附加信令传输。 Accordingly, the user equipment may remain active for longer scheduled to occur at the time, but still use the short timer is scheduled to occur when there is no activity, without additional signaling from the network.

[0050] 图2图示了根据某些实施方式的方法。 [0050] FIG 2 illustrates a method embodiment in accordance with certain embodiments. 如图2中所示,方法可以包括在210配置用户设备(UE)的非连续接收(DRX)模式。 As shown in Figure 2 the method 210 may comprise configuring a user equipment (UE) in a discontinuous reception (DRX) mode. 该配置可以基于在205在用户设备从基站接收的信令传输。 The configuration may be based on a transmission received at the user equipment 205 from the base station signaling. 该配置可以是初始配置。 This configuration may be the initial configuration. 该配置可以备选地在动态调整期之后成为新的配置。 The new configuration may alternatively be arranged after the dynamic adjustment. 该配置可以按照各种方式完成,包括通过从基站接收“复位”命令。 This configuration can be done in various ways, including by the base station receives a "reset" command.

[0051] 该方法还可以包括在220针对基站自治地调整用户设备的非连续接收模式。 [0051] The method may further include adjusting 220 a discontinuous reception mode the user equipment for the base station autonomously. 通过“自治”,可以理解不需要来自基站的如下信令传输,该信令传输是为了命令非连续接收模式中的特定改变。 By "autonomy" it need not be understood that the following signaling from the base station, the signaling is specific commands to change the discontinuous reception mode. 相反,用户设备本身调整非连续接收模式而不需要来自基站(诸如,增强型节点B(eNB))的进一步的信令传输。 Instead, the user device itself to adjust the discontinuous reception mode without further signaling from the base station (such as an enhanced Node B (eNB)) of. 例如,该调整可以基于至少一个规则。 For example, the adjustment may be based on at least one rule.

[0052] 该至少一个规则可以是以下各项中的一个或多个:在开通持续时间计时器期间是否调度了用户设备;在不活动计时器期间是否调度了用户设备;活动在先前周期中时间有多长;活动时间需要在先前周期中有多长;以及活动时间在先前周期中的有效长度。 [0052] The at least one rule may be one or more of the following: during the scheduled duration timer whether the user equipment; during the inactivity timer if the scheduled user equipment; activity in the previous cycle time how long; how long the time required in the event the previous cycle; and the effective length of the active time in the previous period. 还可以使用其他规则作为用于调整参数的输入。 Other rules may also be used as an input for the adjustment parameter. 调度密度(例如,UE被调度的频率)、调度周期或频率以及分配大小是某些示例。 Scheduling density (e.g., UE scheduled frequency), the period or frequency scheduling and allocation size are some examples.

[0053] 调整非连续接收模式可以包括在222调整开通持续时间计时器长度、不活动计时器长度或非连续接收周期长度中的至少一个。 [0053] adjust the discontinuous reception mode may include a duration timer 222 to adjust the length, the length of the inactivity timer or a discontinuous reception cycle length at least one.

[0055] 自适应可以包括在226以第一步长减少计时器,并且随后在228以第二步长增加计时器,其中第一步长个别地小于第二步长。 [0055] The adaptation may include a first step in reducing the timer 226, and subsequently in a second step to increase the timer 228, wherein the first step is less than the length of a second step individually. 换言之,可以在数量上减少或减小计时器的长度,该数量(按绝对形式计算)小于计时器增加的量。 In other words, the length of the timer can be reduced or reduced in quantity, the quantity (in absolute form) is less than the amount of the timer is increased. 这些增加和减少的示例并不是起限制作用,而是简单地例示一个可能的方式。 The increase and decrease are not examples be limiting, but simply illustrate a possible way.

[0056] 图3图示了根据某些实施方式的方法。 [0056] FIG. 3 illustrates a method embodiment in accordance with certain embodiments. 如图3中所示,在310,方法可以包括配置用户设备(UE)的非连续接收(DRX)模式。 As shown in FIG. 3, at 310, the method may comprise configuring a user equipment (UE) in a discontinuous reception (DRX) mode. 该配置可以涉及从基站(诸如,eNB)向用户设备传输配置消息。 This configuration may involve a configuration message from the base station (such as, eNB) to a user equipment transmissions.

[0057] 该方法还可以包括在320基于非连续接收模式和至少一个自适应规则,来确定用户设备的非连续接收模式的自适应状态。 [0057] The method may further comprise at 320 based on the discontinuous reception mode and at least one adaptation rule to determine adaptive state of the discontinuous reception mode the user equipment. 换言之,通过了解什么通信已经通过用户设备实施或调度以及了解一个或多个规则,基站可以预测非连续接收模式的当前状态。 In other words, by knowing what the user has passed through the communication device or implementation of one or more scheduling rules and knowledge, the base station may predict a current state of the discontinuous reception mode.

[0058] 该方法可以进一步包括在330配置用户设备的第二非连续接收模式。 [0058] The method may further comprise a second configuration of the user equipment in the discontinuous reception mode 330. 该第二模式可以与第一模式相同或不同。 The second pattern may be the same or different from the first mode. 如果关于用户设备的状态是否对应于由基站计算或者预测的状态存在不明确,则配置第二模式可以是确保用户设备与基站之间的同步的一种方式。 If the status of the user equipment corresponds to the presence of a base station or calculated by the predicted state is not clear, the configuration of the second mode may be a way of ensuring synchronization between the user equipment and the base station.

[0059] 该方法可以附加地包括在340发送配置用于复位用户设备的非连续接收模式的复位命令。 [0059] The method may additionally comprise transmitting a reset command to configure a discontinuous reception mode the user equipment is reset at 340. 该复位命令可以是来自基站的显式信号,并且可以配置用于将用户设备返回至针对非连续接收模式的初始配置状态。 The reset command may be an explicit signal from the base station, and may be configured to return to the initial configuration of the user equipment for discontinuous reception state mode.
